+ Shlohmo (FoF/Error Broadcast/Wedidit, LA/NYC)
An LA native, Laufer grew up listening to "stuff like DJ Shadow, Amon Tobin, M83 - stuff with some sort of cinematic vision." He started making beats when he was 14, but "didn't really do it with any sort of purpose until I was like 17 or 18. That was also around the time he and his friends, already fans of Flying Lotus, discovered Low End Theory. Shlohmo has rocketed onto our radar screen in recent months with his lo-fi, psychedelic mix of abstract hip-hop, bouncy synth-funk, breezy trip-hop, and what sounds like lost Mo' Wax gems from an alternate future.
His tracks swarm from dirty textures, strange sounds and obscured samples. It's not hip-hop what you hear, but the echoes are clearly there.

+ Curation by Zoe Noble Fox (Virtual Agalma, TO)
Alongside the main event that comprises Visions, a visual intermission is offered in the form of a psychedelic reprieve. Curated by ZoÃ© Noble Fox, an immersive installation room exists within the event that draws inspiration from Homerâ€™s Odyssey in which mortals and immortals cross realms within an eternal cave.
The cave is a place of playful hallucination and transformations that forge intimacy between those who chance to wander into it. This mysterious segment of Visions creates a dream-like state of ethereal transformation, where all exists to mystify and nothing is as it seems.
